connection? here's abc's ron clane orn. >> reporter: police say 24-year-old dawn nguyen supplied the guns used to ambush four firefighters on christmas eve, killing two of them. >> when nguyen bought the guns and said she was going to be the owner, she lied. >> reporter: authorities say she bought the guns for her neighbor, william spengler, back in 2010. that he even went to the gun store with her to pick them out. spengler, a convicted felon, could not legally purchase a firearm himself. she told police she bought the guns for her own protection and they had recently been stolen. what's not in dispute, spengler used those guns monday night, a 12-gauge shotgun and a bushmaster semiautomatic rifle while they were responding to a blaze he had set. >> firemen mike chiapperini was deceased at the scene. >> reporter: also killed, tomas kaczowka. spengler took his own life. tonight dawn nguyen is facing 10 years in prison for her alleged role in this tragedy. earlier this week, the children of webster, new york, lit candles to honor those firefighters who died. today's arrest shows how serious
observed and what i heard from ron case. i found by checking with justin gen and abc that there is a place for retail wine shop and it didn't say they wanted to be retail wine shop. they said we want to be a wine-tasting bar, either written in by them or abc, because that was the intent. here they were given a clear conditional use that said repeatedly in order to avoid confusion, it will not be a bar. the noise problem was brought to my attention, apart from the fact that i hear it when i go by there with the windows and doors open by many people and certainly by the managers in the building; when i went there on a different purpose that the elders there really suffer. i brought you some of the statements of support, okay? there is a petition, signed by people all over the city, and? in the greater nob hill area and nobody nearby within a block or two blocks except one i see on the page. statements on the black, i want to change the verbiage from wine-tasting to wine bar. now you can say it doesn't add a bar, but it does really. he added a bar that wasn't supposed to be there. the police

are cnn contributor and democratic strategist maria cardona and republican strategist ron bonjin. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> ron, i'll start with you. reid and mcconnell, they really are the focus in the senate. in the house, it's speaker john boehner. i've got to ask you, is his job on the line if republicans balk at any deal that's reached? >> no, not at all. speaker boehner is extremely strong. his conferences support him and knows that he's been in a tough position trying to negotiate the fiscal deal with the president. he's been doing this for weeks, month, working on this deal. and you know, they gave it a shot. they tried their best. the house, you know, house republicans wouldn't go for it. and said, you know, it's up to the senate. and once -- if the senate passes something, the house now will consider it. so i -- i do think that the speaker is in a very strong position. and besides, this is a very difficult job. i don't see many republicans standing up and wanting to take speaker boehner on. not many other people could do the job like speaker bo
of privacy amendments, including one from democratic senator ron wyden of oregon. his amendment would have required the head of the country's spy agencies to tell congress when americans accidentally got spied on. right now, we have no way of knowing how often that happens. also, republican senator rand paul of kentucky, he wanted to force the government to get a warrant to read our e-mails and other electronic communications. for privacy advocates, these amends were the good news. the bad news, the democratic-controlled senate killed every single one of those amendments. killed them dead. they voted them all down. and today the once-controversial warrantless wiretapping bill was extended for another five years, and amazingly, almost nobody seems to have noticed. we used to fight about this tough. the whole reason fisa needs congressional reauthorization every few years is that we are supposed to reassess it, debate it, have a big conversation about it. but we were quiet this time. so let's have one here. joining us now, not to be quiet about it, is my friend julian sanchez, a research fel
for public comment. are there members of the public who wish to speak on item number 12? >>> yes, ron rubina. i just asked mr. kim if a little radio device would work in the bus shelters where they have, you know, number 22 arriving 50 minutes. he said yes. so, i wonder if not in this project, in some project, and if not with this money, some of that big emergency management money, you could put in at least the most used lines in some of the shelters emergency giants crowd bus arriving in 7 hours or bus broke down. i hope you'll get some of these little radio receivers in the shelters on the most used lines so people will know the bus is delayed. thank you. >> thank you. are there other members of the public who wish to speak on item 12? seeing none, public comment is closed. colleagues, do we have a motion to approve the requested release of 1.6 million on reserve for the sfmta radio program? >> do we have to first motion to approve the amendments as recommended by the budget analyst? >> and to also accept the budget analyst recommendations. we have a notion to do that. and can we do that w
. >> [speaker not understood]. >>> good afternoon, chairman nolan, members of the board. i happened to catch ron owens this morning. he had a discussion about this topic on his radio show and people called in and people said, hey, i'm going to go shop elsewhere. yeah. you might gain a few bucks from the meters on sundays, but you're going to lose a lot of taxpayer money -- sales tax money from people deciding to shop elsewhere. i'm thinking we need to have a color sticker that says operating sundays on the meters because the letters are going to start coming to the editorial pages saying what happened. they didn't know. even though you're going to do outreach, you're still going to have a lot of people who don't know. if you don't do it -- at least have television coverage and radio coverage and big-page ads in the newspapers, you're not going to be able to cover everybody. but the thing is people are going to -- once they get that whopping $75 ticket or whatever, they're going to decide they're not going to shop in san francisco. you're trying to get people to take public transit. they're not g
. >> supervisor elsbernd: thank you very much. next speaker please. >> hey, ron austin, executive haven't -- workers union, it's been a long day. we're here to say a few words for the record to the board we received correspondence from sf mta for a service reduction on the day before christmas and the week after, and subsequently that week in between new year's and christmas. and we didn't know if the board or the city knew. and this is something that was attempted a couple of weeks back with the thanksgiving week, in which we disapproved because the level of ridership that happens after or before the holiday actually is increased with increased shopping and commerce in the union square area, also with people still have to go to work. we've been kind of forced into the situation where they want to meet and confer over this for us to agree to the service cut and i don't think it follows the tenants of the traffic first quality to keep the level of service per the 1996 levels. also the budget includes funding to have a regular service schedule before and after the holiday. that was passed
, everyone somehow manages to scramble out. amazingly this escapade on ice ended just fine. >>> ron claiborne with the dramatic pictures from california. the mountains there. >>> now we turn to those pictures from moscow. >>> the flight was attempting to land at moscow's airport when it overshot the runway, broke through a barrier fence and finally skidded to a stop on the edge of a highway, the plane broke into three pieces and burst into flames, witnesses rushed to pull survivors from the wreckage. it was flying back from the czech republic with no passengers and just eight crew members onboard. four of them were killed including the pilot. other four were seriously injured. the death toll could have been worse because that's a major highway. >> russia's air fatality rate is three times higher than the world's average. investigation has been opened up into today's crash. abc news, moscow. >>> in chicago tonight, a stunning milestone to mark this year's end. 500 homicides in that city, near a record high, which they attribute to gang violence and illegal guns. in new york city, 414 murders.
him ron, he addressed her as margaret. >> i think they had quite a congenial, personal connection to each other. but these documents show that margaret thatcher, not always so full of praise for reagan. >> britain was at war for argentina, trying to hold onto islands in south atlantic. >> the united states couple down firmly on our side over the f k falklands. >> but in private there were tension. she wanted victory. mrs. thatcher said she was sure that the president would act in the same way if alaska was threatened. >> she writes, i think you are the only person who would understand the significance of what i'm trying to say. >> very personal. >> absolutely. >> the charm offensive did the trick and they remained friends long after he left power. margaret thatcher, 87 years old, spent christmas in the hospital ill. in the coming years, we'll likely see many more files which will shed a light on a time when she and president reagan were working together to spring an end to the cold war. fascinating stuff, t.j. >> thank you so much. >>> getting close to the bottom of the hour now.
and ron johnson. senators, welcome back. >> hi, sean. >> hi, sean. >> sean: let's start with the meeting today. senator toomey, i'm told that the president wassed adamant n the meeting and didn't come off, are the original request was to keep tax rates at the same for the middle class but everybody above $250,000 going up. is that what you heard? >> i haven't heard about specific elements of the conversation, sean, i wasn't in the room. what i do understand from people who were there is that is sounds for the first time like the president is actually engaged and actually would prefer that we not go over the cliff. clear previously.en leer the fact that mitch mcconnell is vouched in discussions is encouraging if something can't pass the senate with a lot of republican votes it is not going to pass the house either. i think for the first time we see some constructive engainlment at least. >> sean: i heard a little different story than senator toomey and that is that a lot of what we are seeing told is really for show and the fielding is that the president made up his mind. he wants to go
kicked down on an important piece of this. spending. i can tell you earlier today republican ron lamar said the president is not doing enough. >> we need two words. presidential leadership on not just taxes rich people, we can tax all the rich people and cut their heads up and it wouldn't help the medicare fiscal cliff. we need to do both and the president has to lead it it and if he does i'm ready to work with him and so are a lot of other republicans and democrats. >> lamar alexander demanding presidential leadership but also making that point that it's not just about taxes. it's also about spending, harris. >> harris: you and ed talk about -- you and i talk about the fact that we don't want to put too fine a point on the fact that there is acting that goes along with politics. what about the president's tone today? it sounded like he was angry. >> oh, yeah. i think from reading his body language and hearing his words as i have over these many years. you have to put into context of frustration he is feeling going back to the debt ceiling debate a year and a half ago. two summers ago
. first and foremost, because of anchorman 2, the legend of ron burgundy continues. right? when i first saw this movie in 2004, i just immediately rushed out, bought my sex panther cologne and have been spearing people with tridents ever since. what bodes well for this one is they wayed a long time to make this one and the entire cast is back. great sign, and even though the first one was kind of lightning in a bottle, i have my fingers and toes crossed. >> i feel that i truly am the model for ron burgundy, if you look at my facebook page with the early pictures of me, i am that man. excited about the sequel. >> i love it. you have the voice too. >> thanks. how about some others besides anchorman? we've got iron man, no direct reference to me, but what do you think of that one? >> no, i don't know about that. look at those bicepses. now, "iron man 3" is led, again by robert downey junior who i think was born to play this role and based on the trailer, this one looks pretty dark. it looks very dark nooistesque and this is when robert downey junior can really show us his acting chops. dir
